COLLEGE OF VETERINARY MEDICINE 

The College of Veterinary Medicine of the University of Illinois was 
established in 1944. A professional four-year course leading to the Doctor 
of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M.) degree was initiated in 1948, and the 
first class of the College was graduated in 1952. The College was ad- 
vanced from undergraduate to professional status in 1957. 

Although one of the newer colleges of the University of Illinois. 
Veterinary Medicine is not a newcomer from the standpoint of tradition. 
A course in veterinary medical science was taught at the University as 
early as 1870, three years after the institution was chartered as the Illinois 
Industrial University. In 1899, a Department of Veterinary Science was 
established in the College of Agriculture. This department was replaced 
by the Division of Pathology and Hygiene in 1917. Two years later, a 

RADIOLOGY INSTRUCTION 




10 



building on smith campus was remodeled and designated the Animal 
Pathology Laboratory and Clinic Building. 

In 1927, a part-time program of extension teaching was formally 
organized and emphasis was placed on disease prevention by proper sani- 
tation, herd and flock management, laboratory aids in diagnosis, and the 
prevention and control of infectious abortion in cattle and swine. Four 
years later, the Illinois State Department of Agriculture began cooperat- 
ing with the Division of Animal Pathology and Hygiene to improve and 
expand diagnostic service for the entire animal population of the state 
This arrangement between the State Department of Agriculture and the 
College of Veterinary Medicine continues to afford advantages in suppress- 
ing disease. 

In 1940, the Division of Animal Pathology and Hygiene became a 
department in the College of Agriculture. The department was made one 
of the four departments of the College of Veterinary Medicine in 1944. 

OBJECTIVES 

The major objective of the College of Veterinary Medicine is to im- 
prove the means of combating livestock diseases on Illinois farms. The 
prevention and control of diseases of all species of animals, including those 
common to man and others of the animal kingdom, are the primary re- 
sponsibility and obligation of the College. The basic requirement is met 
by thorough, intensive training of qualified students in the science and art 
of veterinary medicine. Of growing importance is the role of the veteri- 
narian in public health. Involved in safeguarding public health are many 
phases, e.g., inspection and control of food quality and wholesomeness, 
regulation of animal transport, import, export, quarantine, testing for and 
research on diseases including the zoonoses — the diseases transmissible 
between human beings and others of the animal kingdom. The health of 
experimental, as well as pet, zoo, and wild animals is also a large responsi- 
bility of the veterinarian. The College's three major activities — teaching, 
public service, and research — serve in the fulfillment of its obligation to 
the health and welfare of both animals and people. 

Teaching is of two kinds — resident and extension. Resident teaching 
is in the undergraduate, professional, and graduate areas. Extension teach- 
ing and continuing education are carried on largely in rural communities 
but reach to urban areas as well. The continuing educational program in- 
cludes on-campus meetings, conferences, and special courses. 

Public service incorporates the important functions of disease detec- 
tion, diagnosis, and control. Many take advantage of the services provided 
by the large and small animal clinics, the diagnostic laboratory, and the 



11 



ambulatory service. Operation of these services provides essential teaching 
patients and experience for students; also, information on epidemics and 
problems demanding research. 

Research toward better means and methods of overcoming the risks 
and ravages of diseases is a vital function of the College. Many of the 
College's research projects are concerned with serious communicable dis- 
eases including the zoonoses such as leptospirosis, viral encephalitis, para- 
sitisms, and rabies. Investigations are also conducted on noninfectious 
diseases — metabolic, nutritional, toxic, and hereditary.

FACILITIES 

The College occupies several buildings and areas including the veteri- 
nary medical basic sciences unit located on Pennsylvania Avenue. The 
four-story, modern, brick building provides offices, laboratories, and class- 
rooms essential for teaching and research. 

The veterinary medical students have access to the excellent Uni- 
versity library and to other college libraries on the campus in addition 
to their own library located on the second floor of the Veterinary Medi- 
cine Building. The veterinary medical library contains approximately 
fourteen thousand volumes covering the broad area which constitutes 
veterinary medicine and related subjects. 

A recently enlarged annex or wing for diagnostic and research work 
adjoins the main building. 

The large animal clinic is located on Maryland Avenue south of the 
basic science unit. It is designed to accommodate forty-two large animal 
patients. The clinic has modern surgery and X-ray facilities, pharmacy, 
recovery rooms, decontamination facilities, and feed and equipment stor- 
age room. To the west and south are enclosed service and exercise courts. 

The small animal clinic is in the old Veterinary Medical Clinic build- 
ing, located at Sixth Street and Taft Drive. Completion of Phase I of 
the clinics and hospital which will replace the small animal clinic is 
scheduled for September, 1967. 

The new, maximal security, Veterinary Medical Research Building at 
Florida Avenue and Virginia Drive was completed in 1961, with support 
of federal, private, and University funds. The unit provides essential 
facilities for the greatly expanding research program on non-infectious as 
well as infectious diseases. Important veterinary medical research is also 
conducted in the Department of Veterinary Research of the Agricultural 
Experiment Station. Utilized for it and for the expanding program of the 
Illinois Center for Zoonoses Research are the Research Farm facilities on 
South Race Street, four miles from the College. 

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

A minimum of sixty semester hours of preveterinary medical instruc- 
tion is required for admission to the College. Preveterinary medical stu- 
dents may register in the College of Agriculture or the College of Liberal 
Arts and Sciences. Equivalent preveterinary instruction may be taken at 
other accredited institutions. Preveterinary medical training does not 
automatically guarantee admission to the College, however. 

Applicants for admission to the College must present not less than sixty 



13 



semester hours of acceptable credit from a recognized college or univer- 
sity. Hours earned in military training or physical education are not 
counted in this total. The minimal acceptable grade-point average is 3.5. 
In the University of Illinois system, 3.5 is midway between B and C. The 
sixty semester hours must be distributed as follows: 

Hours 

Chemistry (including organic and quantitative analysis) 16 

Biological Science (biology including botany and general zoology) 8 

Physics (including laboratory) 8 

Foreign Language 1 6 

English Composition and Rhetoric 6 

Electives in not less than two of the following fields: economics (including agricultural 
economics), fine arts, language, geography, history, literature, philosophy, political 
science, psychology, sociology, speech. Approximately one-half of these credits 
must be in the following fields: anthropology, economics, geography, history, 

political science, psychology, or sociology 9 

Free Electives 7 

Total 60 

1 One year of a single foreign language of college grade or three years of one foreign 
language from an accredited high school. Students with two years of credit in a foreign 
language may take the University of Illinois proficiency examinations in the same language. 
Passing these examinations satisfies the requirement of one year (6 hours) of college 
language courses. 

Proficiency in the use of written English is required. Students who 
receive grades of C or D in Rhetoric 102 or its equivalent are required to 
pass an English qualifying examination. 

Restrictions of enrollment of students in the professional College 
curriculum is mandatory because of limited facilities. In selecting students 
for admission, scholarship in preveterinary medical subjects and character 
references are considered. Aptitude testing, general and professional, 
together with personal interviews, also serves in the careful screening of 
students. Preference is given to residents of Illinois and to Illinois service 
vetei ans. 

Information regarding admission requirements may be obtained by 
writing to the Director of Admissions and Records, Administration Build- 
in-. 1 Fniversity of Illinois. Urbana, Illinois 61801. 

Applications for admission to the school year which begins in Sep- 
tember should be submitted to the 1 )irector of Admissions and Records not 
latei than April 1. Each new undergraduate student (except foreign 
st i kW-iii > wIki. at the time of application, arc residing outside the United 
States approved foi admission to the University of [llincis College of 
Veterinary Medicine is required t<> make an advance deposil oJ $30. 00 in 
ordei to hold the admission granted him. This is not an additional cost 



M 



for attending the University, but will be applied to each student's tuition 
and Ires in the semester for which he or she is admitted. The deposit 
should not be sent until requested by the University after the student has 
been notified of his acceptance for admission. The deposit is non- 
refundable except in very special cases. It will be refunded after registra- 
tion to students holding scholarships covering both tuition and fees.

THE CURRICULUM 

The first two years in the College of Veterinary Medicine are devoted 
largely to basic scientific subjects such as anatomy, biochemistry, physi- 
ology, bacteriology, pathology, parasitology, and pharmacology. These 
courses are the foundation for the applied work of the final two years. In 
addition to the basic courses, selected courses are required in animal, 
poultry, and dairy science. 

The third year represents a transitional stage in education of the pro- 
fessional college student. The courses are of semi-applied and applied 
nature and form a bridge between the fundamental work of the first two 
years and the clinical and other applied work of the fourth year. The 
courses of the final two years include pharmacology, general and special 
surgery, diseases of small animals, diseases of large animals, breeding prob- 



15 



Iems and obstetrics, public health, and clinical and laboratory practice. 
Limited elective courses are afforded also, e.g., management and diseases 
of laboratory animals. 

The major portion of the instruction in the fourth year is in labora- 
tory and clinical practice. It affords the students ample opportunity to 
apply knowledge gained in the classroom and laboratory to the diagnosis, 
treatment, and prevention of animal diseases. Courses in radiology, diseases 
of poultry, infectious diseases of large animals, food hygiene and public 
health, jurisprudence, business methods and ethics, together with clinical 
pathology conferences, and seminars complete the formal education. 

The third- and fourth-year classes are divided into groups with rotating 
assignments in the various clinical services. The fourth-year class spends 
two days at the Dixon Springs Agricultural Center at Robbs, Illinois, 
where the students participate in the fall roundup and gain valuable ex- 
perience in the handling, examination, and treatment of diseases of range 
cattle. During the spring semester, the upper classes take field trips to 
selected packing, food, and dairy products processing plants in the Chi- 
cago and other areas. In addition, they are afforded practical observa- 
tions of and contact with public health agencies and their programs, with 
the activities of the biological and pharmaceutical industries, with zoologi- 
cal gardens and animal colonies, and with industrial, University, and other 
research programs.

riculum and who have a grade-point average of 3.0 or better for these 
courses are eligible for the degree of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. 

GRADING SYSTEM 

Grade designations are A, B, C, D, and E. D is the lowest passing 
grade and E is failure. The computation of individual averages is as 
follows: A = 5 points; B = 4;C = 3;D = 2; and E = 1. The credit 
points for a course are computed by multiplying the credit hours by the 
credit points of the letter grade.

SCHOLARSHIPS AND LOANS 

A number of cash scholarships and tuition waiver scholarships are 
awarded by the University of Illinois each year. Some are restricted to 
specific areas of study, including veterinary medicine, while others are 
available to students in all areas. A superior scholastic record and evi- 
dence of financial need are usually required, and most of the scholarships 
are restricted to Illinois residents. The majority of scholarships are 
awarded in the late spring or early summer for the ensuing school year. 
Applications for the first semester, which begins in September, should be 
made as soon as possible after November 1 of the preceding year.

GRADUATE STUDY 

A program of graduate study leading to advanced degrees — Master 
of Science and Doctor of Philosophy — in Veterinary Medical Science is 
offered. Students may specialize in the various disciplines or areas, includ- 
ing anatomy, microbiology, parasitology, pathology, pharmacology, and 
physiology offered by the Department and other departments of the 
Graduate College. Research programs are both fundamental and applied. 
The major objective of graduate study is to qualify the candidate for 
veterinary medical research in various areas including clinical specialties 
and for teaching. 

STUDENT HEALTH SERVICE 

The Health Service of the University provides routine clinical, labora- 
tory, and X-ray services for all students. Consultation is available on 
personal matters of a medical nature and on dental and psychiatric 
problems. 

In addition, students are eligible for admission and may receive 
services as outpatients at McKinley Hospital, which operates on the 
campus under the Health Service. Hospitalization for students is covered 
by student insurance. A Health Service physician is in residence at the 
hospital after the regular hours of the Health Center. He provides emer- 
gency service and admits patients to the hospital if they have not been 
seen by a private physician prior to admission. 

STUDENT EMPLOYMENT 

Some students work part time while attending school. Because of the 



23 



large number of classroom hours required of veterinary medical students, 
however, it is recommended that additional work be kept at a minimum. 
Veterinary medical students are employed on the College's research 
projects as technicians, assistants, and animal caretakers, and in other 
University departments as laboratory assistants. Such work offers both 
income and valuable experience to the prospective veterinarian. Other 
students find board or board-and-rcom employment. The Student Employ- 
ment Office, a division of the Dean of Students' Office, provides informa- 
tion and assistance to the student who seeks part-time work. 

LIVING ARRANGEMENTS 

The Housing Division offers current information on all types of 
accomodations for undergraduate, graduate, married, and single students. 
It issues application forms for space in University-operated residence 
halls, provides lists of rooms available in other approved residences, and 
supervises standards of safety, health, comfort, and study conditions in 
housing units in which undergraduate and professional men and women 
live. 

Students are requested to contact the Housing Division by mail or in 
person immediately after applying for admission to the University. They 
will then receive copies of the Handbook of Student Housing, lists of 
current vacancies, area maps, etc., and will be given definite instructions 
on how to apply for space in the particular type of unit in which they 
are interested and which will best serve their individual needs. 

ORGANIZATIONS 

STUDENT CHAPTER OF THE AMERICAN VETERINARY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION 

A center of student activities in the College of Veterinary Medicine 
is the student chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association. 
Similar organizations are found at all recognized veterinary medical 
schools and colleges in the United States and Canada. 

Activities of the student chapter at Illinois include social gatherings, 
sponsorship of the Preveterinary Medical Student Club, the annual wel- 
come to first-year students, alumni dance, student-staff spring picnic, and 
spring dinner-dance. Guest speakers on many phases of veterinary medi- 
cine and on other subjects appear on semimonthly programs. The 
chapter sponsors intramural athletic teams such as basketball, football, 
Softball, and bowling. 

OMEGA TAU SIGMA 

I he National Fraternity established Theta Chapter on the campus in 



24 



1956. The purpose of this organization is to develop broadly educated, 
public spirited veterinarians. 

Membership is open to all members of the student body of the College. 
The organization functions efficiently to provide effective relationships 
outside the classroom, including group participation in educational and 
social gatherings. 

ALUMNI ASSOCIATION 

Graduates of the College have formed the University of Illinois 
Veterinary Medical Alumni Association. The Association is designed to 
create broader professional acquaintance among its members, to afford 
opportunity for increasing professional knowledge, to maintain mutually 
beneficial contact with the College, and to counsel with the student body 
and faculty. 

WOMEN'S AUXILIARY OF THE STUDENT CHAPTER 

OF THE AMERICAN VETERINARY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION 

The Auxiliary of the Illinois student chapter is open to wives of 
veterinary medical students. The Auxiliary meets monthly in the audito- 
rium of the Veterinary Medicine Building to hear guest speakers on topics 
related to the veterinary medical profession as well as other topics. The 
group also sponsors social events such as the wives' banquet for husbands, 
a farewell party for wives, and other activities.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR VETERINARIANS 

A wide horizon of endeavor and service awaits the graduate in 
veterinary medicine. Although 60 per cent of all our country's vet- 
erinarians are engaged in some kind of practice, there are many other 
opportunities for contributions through public service, in teaching and 
research, in public health, in regulatory endeavor at the national, state, 
and local levels, as well as inspection activities, food sanitation, and 
related undertakings. The needs and opportunities for graduate vet- 
erinarians are growing in several phases of teaching, including extension, 
and in research. Industry depends on veterinary medical skill for the 
production of biological and pharmaceutical products, in its education 
and sales efforts, and for field service. 

The United States Department of Agriculture requires a full-time 
staff of about 1,500 veterinarians whose principal assignments are the 
inspection for wholesomeness and safety of the meat processed in fed- 
erally inspected packing plants and at ports; field work in animal disease 
detection, suppression, and eradication forms another segment. By in- 
specting animals before, at the time of, and after slaughter, as well as 
during processing operations, veterinarians detect and exclude unsafe 
meat and meat products. 

Other opportunities in the Department of Agriculture include stock- 
yards supervision, poultry inspection, enforcement of import and export 
regulations, research on animal health problems, and licensing and super- 
vision of the manufacture of serums and vaccines for animals. 

The Army and Air Force also require a substantial number of vet- 
erinarians for the inspection of foods, especially meat and dairy products 
(to prevent unwholesome or poor-quality foods from being served to 
troops) , and for diagnosis and research, including new and important 
phases of space medicine. Other agencies that engage the competence 
of veterinarians are the United States Public Health Service and the Food 
and Drug Administration. United States veterinarians also serve with 
international agencies such as the World Health Organization, the Pan- 
American Health Organization, and the Peace Corps. 

Many states and municipalities employ veterinarians for disease 
control and eradication work. These veterinarians cooperate with 
federal and local as well as private practitioners, and with public health 
veterinarians in testing and diagnosis, in environmental sanitation of 
packing houses and food establishments, and in the control of meat, milk, 
and other animal food products. 

Rapid developments in the nuclear sciences have created problems 
oi contamination by radio-active fallout. The public has been alerted to 



26 



the need for veterinary medical aid in reducing the danger of exposure 
of food-producing animals and contamination of meat and milk. Vet- 
erinarians are informed in the ways of protecting animals against these 
and pesticide and agricultural chemical hazards and safeguarding this 
important segment of our food and economy. 

Other opportunities involve keeping healthy the animals in zoos and 
public parks, racing stables, animal colonies for medical and veterinary 
medical research, fur farms, circuses, ranches, and humane society 
shelters.
